Journal Bearing (Non VGT, Non Ball Bearing, Non Electronic)


1. Journal bearing turbo: $400.00


    A. $275.00 of that goes towards labor.


    B. $125.00 of that goes towards the "soft parts" portion of the rebuild 

         which are the parts that are supposed to wear normally in the center 

         housing called the bearing housing. 


    C. What this does not cover is wheels, housings, or actuators. If these

        parts are damaged beyond repair or re-usability and require replacement, 

        that is an additional cost. This fee structure is identical to how engine  

        rebuild shops prepare their fee structure.


    D. All upgrade parts are additional if these are requested replacing OEM

        style components.


    E. At no point will the repair cost exceed the fair market average purchase 

        price of complete turbo replacement should your turbo be in such 

        disastrous condition so as to require it.


     F. If you send in your turbo for a rebuild/upgrade or repair estimate and do 

         not wish to proceed with any service for any reason (after this estimate is 

         completed: you will be charged a 2 hour fee @ $75.00 per hour for this 

         service (regarding the teardown & cleaning portion necessary to do an 

         accurate estimate). If you proceed with the repair, this 2 hour fee is absorbed 

         into the repair cost and will be waived. If we picked up your turbo for a 

         rebuild/repair estimate and you decide not to perform any service, returning 

         your turbo will be your responsibility. You will be billed an additional 2 hours 

         labor fee for retrieval of your turbo on top of the rebuild/upgrade or repair estimate.

         This may seem harsh to some, but we get an awful lot of young folks who think

         we should work for free. This just weeds out the "tire kickers".


    G. Please keep in mind that all shops charge a little different rate. We have 

         actually lowered our basic fee by $50.00 over the years in order to stay 

        on par with the competition. We use primarily only American made internal 

        rebuild parts. I assure you when you find others with lower repair/rebuild fees 

        this is one area that many cut corners on. WE DO NOT. Off shore parts if not 

        done right in every way, will be the nightmare in your force inducted experience.


    H. If you buy rebuild parts from an EBay vendor and ask me to use them: I will tell

         you that I won't do it (unless they are a "KNOWN GOOD VENDOR" to me, 

         not you: me). Please don't ask. I am the professional in regards to this 

         matter and I assure you there are a myriad of reasons why these components 

         do not last. Metallurgy is nearly almost always the reason. It ain't correct.
